I am having trouble establishing it. I am using Windows XP. I can create the network fine and had another pc join the network but the moment I enable "allow network users to connect through this computers internet connection" under "Internet Connection Sharing" on the host computer it immediately stops data from getting exchanged. It actually cuts my internet right when I enable this even if I haven't connected to the network myself yet. Is there something I'm doing wrong on my end or is this just not possible while using Tether? Thanks for the help.

It should be possible, I just haven't done it so can't really comment. Hopefully someone else on here has done it.

Here's how i got it to work on a Vista machine;

1.) Disconnect from all networks, but leave your wireless card on your pc enabled.

2.) Goto Network and Sharing Center
a.) Manage network connections
b.) Select the Tether connection/properties/sharing, and share this connection for internet.
b1.) makes sure you pick wireless in the box below the sharing box
c.) Save and close this window

3.) Again, back to Network and Sharing Center
a.) Set up a connection or network
b.) Set up a wireless adhoc network, then next.
c.) create and save, if you wish not to have to create it everytime you disconnect.

4.) Now run Tether as you normally do and make sure you are connected to the adhoc network.

5.) The adhoc network should now be available to other wireless devices.

I have successfully connected XP, Vista, Win7 machines and an Ipod Touch simultaneously sharing the internet connection from the host Vista PC.

I'm not sure if the procedure is the same on an XP machine.

Seems I had the right steps but was somehow going in the wrong order. I have a few more issues on my own end to get this working reliably without problems but hopefully soon. Thanks for the help!

Alternatively if your around a router you can simply right click the Tether adapter and enable sharing, now plug a cable from your PC LAN port to your routers WAN port...properly encrypted wireless for all.
